Gifted and Talented

Gifted learners will . . .

  • listen attentively,  collaborate purposefully and provide, receive, and apply specific, targeted feedback to peers in order to become effective communicators.
  • practice inquiry skills in order to develop higher-leveled, open ended questions by gathering and evaluating a variety of credible and reliable resources to draw conclusions based on data.
  • develop critical and creative thinking skills by generating and evaluating original ideas that lead to deeper understandings and innovative solutions.
  • pose questions to clarify and interpret information, probe for causes and consequences, combine ideas in a variety of ways and from a range of sources to create new possibilities, consider feedback and adjust their thinking, and justify the thinking behind choices they have made.
